WATCH: Ireland amateur rugby nostalgia | Lions tours | Galwey, Popplewell and Woods

Mick Galwey, Nick Popplewell, and Niall Woods join John Duggan for OTB Sports' Saturday Panel this week as we take a look back on the amateur era of rugby in Ireland.

How has the game changed? How huge have strides been in diet and nutrition? Was concussion a worry?

Galwey discussed why Richard Harris was not allowed at Young Munster or Ireland matches, but he showed up anyways. Was the legendary actor a Jonah?

Woods recounts Sir Clive Woodward's early days as a professional coach, and why the future World Cup winner was not the best fit at London Irish.

Popplewell and Galwey reminisce about some of the shenanigans they got up to on Lions tours in the amateur era, selectors smoking cigars late at night, and how a 'quick slap' solved many issues on the pitch.

Finally, the Saturday Panel talked through the importance of the club game in Ireland, with a focus on the All-Ireland League.
